Sabbra CadabraSabbra Cadabra

Sabbra Cadabra is the closest thing you can get to an early 1970s Black Sabbath show without using a time travel device! The group features Neil Priddey on lead guitar as ‘Tony’, Tim Campling on bass as ‘Geezer’, Stuart Mills on drums as ‘Bill’ and of course, starring as ‘Ozzy’, is vocalist Kevin McGillian. The Sabbra Cadabra show is a very faithful reproduction of early Sabbath material, featuring absolute classics from the first 8 albums with the original line-up between 1970 and 1978. The attention to detail with performing and attempting to look like the Godfathers of Heavy Metal is simply superb. After all, you don’w want to watch just a bunch of guys in jeans and t-shirts do you?! Sabbra Cadabra get as close as you can get to being authentic to the legend that is Black Sabbath, so they don’t play any Ozzy solo material, they don’t play anything from after 1978 and they don’t play the songs like a covers band would! For a totally absorbing and realistic Black Sabbath material (and many have said better-sounding than the last couple of Sabbath concerts...) then you simply cannot miss seeing Sabbra Cadabra for the best Sabbath experience you’re likely to see! Don’t miss it! Sabbra Cadabra play 2 hours of non-stop classic Sabbath...no Ozzy solo songs...no Randy Rhoads or Zakk Wylde 'interpretations' of Sabbath...no dodgy wigs...no 'pub band cover versions'...no changing the keys from the originals...THE ULTIMATE TRIBUTE TO SABBATH, PLAYED LIKE SABBATH, SOUNDS LIKE SABBATH!

Maiden Scotland are one of the best and most established tributes to rock legends Iron Maiden. Formed in 2003, Maiden Scotland have been touring all over the UK and Ireland ever since. Featuring 5 experienced musicians, the band is fronted by vocal powerhouse Martin Jakubski. Martin has the exceptional power and range needed to accurately deliver the air raid siren vocals of Bruce Dickinson. Martin's singing credentials were proven when he was chosen by original Marillion guitar Steve Rothery to sing in his solo band. On the lead twin guitar are the brothers grimm, Mark and Stuart Mitchell, both have performed on tour with original Iron Maiden singer Paul Dianno and know exactly how a Maiden tribute should sound! Completing the line up on bass is the Glasgow legend that is Allen Bell as wee 'arry! On drums we have the amazing Mark Bray who also features in top Rush tribute Moving Pictures, both top class musicians.

Maiden Scotland cover all era of Iron Maiden. Although the focus is mainly on the classic Eighties era. You will hear all the classic hits like Run to the Hills, Wasted Years and Can I Play with Madness but also epic album tracks like Fear of the Dark and Phantom of the Opera. Maiden Scotland are not a cabaret tribute band and do not wear wigs, preferring to focus on putting on a full blown rock gig with 110% commitment. A ferocious live band in their own right, Maiden Scotland's gonna get ya!
